Sailing on your own is one thing, but sailing with an all female crew………………….

It’s fantastic.

One night in the bar with Helen, such a long time ago, we started to make plans for an entry into the Women’s open keelboat championships this year. It needed to be a good team, no compromise on ability and a crew of sailors who would work well together, get their heads down and do some serious racing.

Mission accomplished, with Mike Bridges very kindly loaning us Elaine for the weekend, we dominated Class 1 with 5 wins and a 3rd, not a cross word between us and some excellent sailing.

We achieved 1st in Class won and 2nd overall, a fine result from a team sailing together for the first time. Photos to follow later……………
